Thank you to everyone for participating in the 2018 Ocean Conservancy Photo Contest, especially our whale-y amazing panel of judges! We are calculating totals and will be announcing the winners the week of July 30th. Stay tuned!

The Details:

  • Submission Period: June 21, 2018 (12:00 a.m. EDT) through July 9, 2018 (11:59 p.m. EDT)

This year, we have five fin-tastic categories to enter:

  • Coastlines & Seascapes
    The ocean is not only what’s beneath the water, but the balance between sky, water and earth.
  • Human Impact
    Both negative and positive, mankind’s impact on the sea cannot be ignored. This category is for photos that highlight the impact the human race has on the ocean, from marine debris and oil spills, to cleanups and animal rescues.
  • Marine Wildlife
    Ocean creatures great and small in their natural environment, the ocean.
  • People & the Ocean
    Photographs that provide a look at our human connection to the ocean, recreation and adventure in and around the deep blue.
  • Underwater Wonders
    From coral reefs to shipwrecks, these photos will leave us in awe of the underwater world of the ocean.

And one lucky winner will receive our Judge’s Choice award! Our panel of expert judges is searching for the best of the best! And while the winners will definitely get bragging rights, that’s not all they’ll be winning. This year, all winners will receive a framed award featuring their beautiful photo, as well as limited-edition Ocean Conservancy merchandise. And the BIG winner一Judge’s Choice一will also receive a $500 gift card to B&H Photo!
